We would like to invite our clients to View or Sign the Guest Book with any condolences they would like to share. In such a short amount of time Gina touched a great deal of people here at Phoenix Ortho.


Gina took on a position as a project manager back in 2015 and quickly became an invaluable member of our family and the implementation team. Regardless of the challenges she may have had in her journey, everyone who worked with her could not deny her passion for her job and her friends.

Gina was an extraordinary person, and this is a truly great loss to our company. She will be profoundly missed by everyone whose lives she touched; family, friends, colleagues and customers alike.

Gina Training


This is Gina and her “ready to fight” camo hat and ever present smile. She was so determined to fight as long as she could and did far exceed the doctors’ initial estimations. Just like her to show prove wrong! She took Phoenix by storm when she joined us. Just 2 weeks after joining our team, she took over the ICD 10 project and worked tirelessly to get it ready for the webinar presentation along with all of the training materials. She loved to teach and share her knowledge. She is missed.

Ready to Fight

Ready to Fight


Gina and I first met about 2 months into her employment at PO in Long Island, New York. Before our meeting I had not had much interaction with her as she was in New Employee Training and working on our ICD-10 Implementation and I was traveling to back to back clients on the East Coast. I used to refer to the client in Long Island as the New York client. To which Gina would correct me and say, “Long Island” “New York is a completely different place”. She taught me to see the details in everything and how important the small things are. This is where the teaching began.

During that trip I automatically knew she was different than any other colleague I had ever had. She was kind, smart, engaging, wanted to learn, and there was just something I could not put my finger on at the time. I would later come to know that Gina was an amazingly talented mentor. They say people come into your life for a reason and Gina’s purpose in my life is still all around me. This was the start to what I would refer to as a “crash course” of life and the pursuit of the dream. For the last 3.5 years, she taught me to exist is this world being who I am because when I do that, that’s where the gift lies. That is where special lives. Special lives where authenticity is. To say this was groundbreaking and meaningful to me is an understatement. It meant everything to me and much more.

As the number of trips and projects increased, we spent the better part of 3.5 years traveling the country together and, in that time, Gina became my friend, my mentor, and a part of my family. Those 3.5 years are something I can’t put into words.

Every client that Gina had the opportunity to work with she brought passion, compassion, and simply was a class act. PO clients were blessed to have her as their Project Manager because she was always making everyone around her better with processes, educating staff, implementation of the product, and simply her generosity to go beyond the implementation of software and truly care about the outcome for the client. We left everywhere we went with friends that continue to this day. It was simply remarkable to watch and be a part of.

As I move forward in a world without Gina, I thank her daily for the little bits of knowledge that she gave me so freely and without need of anything in return. I know that she touched so many of us on this planet and hope that as I go through this life I can simply be as gracious, kind, and generous of a human being. She would expect me to go forward with the greatness that she saw in me and not be anything less.

I have been pondering one question for most of my adult life. What is it to be HUMAN? I did not know this, but Gina was answering that question for me over the last 3.5 years. It comes from her presence with clients and colleagues to really understand what the issue is and come up with a solution or a way of explaining the same thing in a different way. Understanding people have their own way of understanding the world around them. Or the person many of us clients and colleagues expressed our thoughts and feelings to. To which we were always shown a HUMAN that listened, engaged, responded, and often listened until we figured out what the correct path forward was. It was showing everyone around her how to lead with passion and compassion. Being HUMAN is simply all of the above. Gina showed me that I could change the world in my own way and expected me to do so. She never wanted me to change who I was at the core, she simply wanted me to find that person and become the best version of it. That is what I take into the future. Finding who the core HUMAN is and becoming the best version of that person.

What a gift…Gina Delmont…Simply a gift to all she touched…I will forever miss you Bravo 1.

Gina Delmont, what can I say, she was a fun loving, dedicated, passionate coworker and friend. I will miss her dearly. We shared many laughs together over the years. She was always up for a good debate about procedures, process and flow. We spent many hours troubleshooting software, learning new builds, working on how to present it, ways to escalate issues and solutions. When she took on the redesign of the PT/OT module she was so excited to be all in to make it better. She relied not only on her experience in the field but her many clients who she worked with to bring about a new module that would help all.

We travelled to several clients together and shared knowledge and information throughout. She wanted to be the best in everything she did and she succeeded the most in making every person in the room feel like she was talking only to them. She was also an active listener and related to people with a genuine heart.

Throughout her health struggles we kept in contact and even on her worst days she had a smile on and a comment to make you feel comfortable about her uncomfortable situation. As I said, I will miss her dearly and carry her enthusiasm into each new venture!
